DMI-65® is an extremely powerful silica sand-based catalytic-action water filtration media that is designed for the removal of iron and manganese without the use of potassium permanganate through an advanced oxidation process.
DMI-65 is a state-of-the-art infusion technology used to produce a catalytic filtration solution that removes iron and manganese from water supplies.
The system does not require potassium permanganate so there is minimal chemical leaching into water streams.
Water filtration system for commercial and industrial applications
Produced by Quantum Filtration, the micro-porous configuration of DMI-65 efficiently eliminates dissolved iron and manganese to 0.001 parts per million (ppm). With a five to ten-year life span, the solution has been used extensively in a wide variety of applications for more than 30 years.
Features of DMI-65 include:
- Wide pH range: between pH5.8 and pH8.6
- High-flow rates: DMI-65 is operational in temperatures up to 113°F (45°C)
- System compatibility
- Arsenic removal
Purified water applications in the mining sector
Water management is becoming a key sustainability issue within the energy and mining resource industries.
Miners often work in dry and remote areas, where environmental issues make water sourcing, use and disposal especially problematic. Water is used throughout the mining process in various applications such as cooling equipment, drinking water production, separating waste and dust control.
Water management applications in the mining sector include drinking, recycled water and process water treatment systems, product recovery, residual management and other treatment technologies.
Mining companies develop water management plans to reduce contamination levels and prevent the discharge of polluted water into the environment. The surrounding surface and groundwater quality is also monitored, while treatment processes ensure mine water meets regulatory standards before being disposed of.
The benefits of using filtered water in the mining industry include:
- Stain reduction
- Minimal downtime
- Cost-effective cleaning and replacement operations
- Improved system performance
- A high-disinfection rate
- Significant return-on-investment
- Decreased potassium permanganate levels
Environmental benefits of using filtered water
The DMI-65 is an environmentally friendly, silica sand-based, catalytic action water filtration system.
Using the DMI-65 based filtration system in the water management strategy has various benefits such as reduced iron and manganese levels in drinking water to below health authority standards, impurity removal to control deposition, carryover and corrosion in boiler systems, as well as the prevention of clogged water feed systems.
DMI-65 has been tested and certified by the Australian Water Quality Association in accordance with NSF/ANSI 61 and for use in England and Wales under Regulation 31 (4a) of the water supply (water quality) regulations 2010 Sl No.994 (W.99).

A reverse osmosis (RO) plant and ultra-filtration (UF) pre-treatment system provided by Osmoflo currently treats water from East Pit, which is a large-capacity surface dam, at the Ulan Mine located near Mudgee in NSW, Australia.
Fortescue Metals's Group's Cloudbreak mine site has won national recognition and awards with the Australian Water Association for their advanced groundwater management scheme.
MMG Golden Grove mine sites required a new reverse osmosis water treatment plant to replace its previously hired units to ensure sustainable, clean and safe potable water for its mine and its accommodation village.
